Subject: Stellar Performance, How did I miss this?
Maybe because the first set only circulates SBD, but still, this Bob Wagner 24 bit transfer sounds fantastic. And what a show to bring back to life!

First set is strong but obviously the meat is in the second. Solidly jammed out Scarlet>Fire with a strange mid-second set Promised Land (only time?) The early rendition of Stagger is a nice addition to the Truckin'>Drums>Other 1. The Other 1 is bursting with so much fluidity and perfection. Even though Jerry's voice wavers throughout the show, his playing is as firey as ever.

The highlight is certainly the Stella Blue into NFA Jam. Simply astonishing. A real transition like iv'e never heard. Poignant, thoughtful, brilliant. Sometimes they just busted into NFA to try to lift the energy level, but this beautiful Stella revels so much about the Dead's mode of jamming and then when Garcia nuances his playing toward the NFA riff, the whole band follows suite.

I'm not normally an AUD guy, but I really wanted to listen to this transfer of the second set, and its really worth a listen and perhaps a download. Maybe someday we'll be lucky enough to have a full show SBD, but for now listen to this quality transfer of an old cult classic.

Thanks CM!
